Christmas Eve was our usual small get together of Mama, Ian, Becky and boyfriend Alan.  We ate our traditional meal of rouladin, red cabbage, mashed potatoes and gravy.  German/Austrian comfort food of the highest order!  Afterwards we opened gifts, ate desert and so to bed.  It was a good evening!

Our Christmas Day feast -- pickled herring on buttered home-baked rye bread accompanied by a salad of cucumbers in sour cream with fresh dill.  All was washed down with frequent sips of ice cold Aquavite.  Humble fare, but so, so good!
